Cards by Coe

Today I am featuring a budding artist.  This is the first time that I have featured someone's elses work. 

This card was create using the following Stampin' Up! products
  • Real Red Ink
  • Scallop Edge Border Punch
Products not identified as Stampin' Up!
  • Cardstock
  • Star punchouts
  • Star brads
  • Red/White striped ribbon
  • Congratulations stamp set
Normally I would not feature a card that wasn't made with at least 65% of Stampin' Up! products.  I have made an exception this time because this was Bruce's first card and he has not yet a Stampin' Up! customer.  I will be trying to win him over and introduce him to the excellent quality products available from Stampin' Up!

Thank you Bruce for submitting your first card.  You are an inspiration!  To help you make your own craft room, your first Stampin' Up! order in the amount of $75 or more will be shipped to you free!

Stampin' Up! Treat Boxes - Not Just for Treats

Stampin' Up! currently has in their Clearance Rack, Treat Boxes - 5 for $1.00 (plus S&H and tax).  I just knew I could find a purpose for them, so I stocked up (a habit of mine).  I found Jackie Topa's idea on the internet.  She submitted her idea to the Stampin' Up! Success magazine (a magazine for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators).  I love the internet!

Do you want to take advantage of the Clearance Rack?  Email me today, quantities are limited.  And when I say, quantities are limited, I have missed out on several good deals because I couldn't decide if I wanted to make the purchase.  Speaking from experience, BUY NOW!  After this post goes live, people will be ordering these treat boxes.

I took the time to figure out a pattern to make the box lid.  Yes, I spent five hours making a tutorial and it is it is yours for $2.50.

Or...tuck the flap inside the box.
